Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
To play without passion is inexcusable!
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
